The attitude does matter: The role of principals’ and teachers’ concerns in an implementation process

International Journal of Educational Research, 100, [101528]. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijer.2019.101528

Using the Stages of Concern, this study aimed to map the reactions of principals and teachers when confronted with an innovation. Furthermore, in this study, individual factors that predicted these concern profiles and the role these profiles play in an implementation process were investigated. For this purpose, we linked the concern profiles with participants’ adoption and diffusion of the innovation (N = 66) as well as with students’ outcomes (N = 539). Although the profiles differed between principals and teachers, they appeared as strong predictors of students’ achievement in the conceptualized implementation process in both subsamples.
